Many are finding out that herpes viruses are much more prevalent and much more dangerous than anyone ever imagined.
Dr Robert Sinnott's reported research has revealed a new clue to the mysterious connection between herpes viruses and connective tissue disease. He explains: “Herpes viruses have long been known to cause human diseases. But we’re finding out that they are much more prevalent and dangerous than anybody ever imagined.”
The herpes family of viruses includes Simplex 1, and Simplex 2. Researchers continue to identify new strains. All the known strains are highly infectious, and can be easily transmitted by hand-to-hand contact. Even touching a contaminated doorknob can lead to infection.
Most people are infected by herpes viruses early in childhood – 99 percent of the population has at least one herpes virus. The most well-known is the virus that causes chickenpox. But there are many others that cause brief flu-like symptoms, and then seemingly disappear. The viruses don’t actually disappear at all – they just go “underground” in the tissues of the body. Researchers have discovered that these so-called ‘dormant’ viruses may actually be replicating at a very low level, causing cumulative damage that manifests itself in middle age. Many herpes viruses hide out in nerve tissue. People who have shingles often feel a burning pain in their nerves before the shingles appear. A certain group of herpes, viruses can hide in the connective tissue. It is theorized that these gamma viruses may be a hidden cause of rheumatoid arthritis and other connective tissue disorders.
Could herpes cause Alzheimer’s disease?
In another startling development, scientists have linked the Simplex I virus with Alzheimer’s disease. Apparently the Simplex I virus can lodge in brain tissue and replicate at a very low level. Inflammatory reaction over years may eventually lead to Alzheimer’s disease.
Dr Sinnott concluded, “Herpes viruses may ultimately be revealed to be one of the leading killers of our species.” Herpes viruses are opportunistic – they strike when your defenses are down. Stress, injury, surgery, infection and illness all increase your susceptibility.
Once again it is quite clear when your IMMUNE SYSTEM is DOWN you can become vulnerable to contracting Viruses, or if you already have them in your system they could be activated in a weak part of your body. This is believed to cause the onset of cancer and other inflammatory conditions. Shingles are a good example. When you are prone to cold sores or Herpes detoxify your body regularly and keep your Immune System at its peak.
REPORT BY Dr.ROBERT SINNOTT.
Herpes is actually a collective group of socially transmitted diseases caused by the herpes simplex viruses type 1 (HSV-1 cold sores) and herpes simplex type 2 (HSV-2 genital herpes). Other types of the virus are widely known as shingles and the Epstein-Barr virus. Unfortunately, most people who are infected have very little or no signs of infection and are unaware that they have the virus in them. Some of the most common herpes symptoms include one or more blisters on the genitals or face that break and leave small ulcers that can take up to 4 weeks to heal initially. These herpes blisters typically recur periodically over time and typically around 5 times per year.
How is Herpes Spread?
The herpes virus is spread through physical contact of the infected area of the skin, more so during an outbreak when the sores are present. However, the virus can be passed on through physical contact even when herpes sores are present and there is no break in the skin. Herpes prevention and precautionary measures must be exercised to avoid spreading of the disease. With genital herpes, the use of male condoms offer fairly good protection only if they area infected on the male is covered and does not come into contact with the female. Protection is of course lost when a condom slips or breaks and contact is made with the infected area. Female condoms may provide greater protection because they cover a larger area.
Herpes can be spread to other parts of the body and infections can occur in many places such as the eyes, mouth, ears, rectum, hand and others. You should always thoroughly wash your hands immediately after touching an infected area.
There are two types of herpes simplex viruses:
Herpes Simplex Type 1 (HSV-1)
Herpes Simplex Type 2 (HSV-2)
These viruses look identical under the microscope and either type can affect the mouth or the genitals. Most commonly, however HSV-1 occurs above the waist and HSV-2 below. Researchers continue to identify new strains. All the known strains are highly infectious, particularly HSV-1 and HSV-2. The body's natural defense system is called the "Immune Responses". Whenever herpes attacks the immune system, the body fights back against this menace. As the battle grows more intense, there are heavy losses by both the herpes virus and the immune system. This causes the body to be less able to defend itself from attacks by other viruses.
At least one in five adults in the United States has genital herpes and it is estimated that 500,000 Americans are diagnosed with genital herpes each year. Even more alarming are the statistics that show oral herpes (HSV-1) to be present in 50 - 80 percent of the American adult population. The most well-known is the virus that causes chickenpox or otherwise known as shingles. But there are many others that cause brief flu-like symptoms, and then seemingly disappear. The viruses don't actually disappear at all - they just go "underground" in the tissues of the body.

You spend all your life taking the best supplements, you exercise regularly, you have checks as recommended by your doctor and yet you end up with dementia spending the “golden” years of your life in a nursing home. Your memory will fail, you will not be able to care for yourself and you will not recognize your own children and grand children. You will need constant care and will be a continuing embarrassment and burden on your children.... not to mention yourself.
What has caused the dementia to develop slowly and progressively that it now affects 60% of elderly people? It shouldn’t because dementia is preventable.
WHAT IS DEMENTIA?
- Dementia occurs as a result of damage to brain tissue and includes such diseases as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's.
- Depending on what part of the brain is damaged determines the presenting symptoms.
- You will suffer changes in memory and muscle functioning (twitchings etc). The extent of the damage determines the severity of symptoms.
DON’T WAIT FOR SYMPTOMS TO DEVELOP ACT NOW!
The major finding in all elderly dementia cases has been that the brain has become scarred.
This scarring will then lead to degeneration of the brain tissue.
What has caused the Brain Scarring and Degeneration?
Here are only two factors that cause scarring and degeneration of brain tissue
1. The first factor is impaired blood flow. If the blood flow to the brain is impaired the affected tissue that it supplies dies.
This dead tissue will then scar and as a natural process it will contract. This
contraction will cause the progressive and insidious onset of dementia.
Once this occurs it is too late, the degeneration and dementia has already started.
Vascular related dementia accounts for 40% of all dementia cases.
What’s caused the blood vessels to narrow?
In a landmark study, the contents of a clogged artery were analyzed and it was found to contain no cholesterol. The offending material was transfats, which are found in margarine and processed oils such as vegetable oils.
To prevent the narrowing of blood vessels, avoid transfats. If the vessels have started clogging you must un clog them using a special mixture. The exact formulae and how to take it is outlined in Ray’s Book. This explains how you must unclog the vessels using a specific, safe and cheap method.
2. The second factor that causes degeneration of brain tissue is inflammation.
What causes Inflammation?
The commonest cause of inflammation is an attack by an organism. This can be viral, fungal or bacterial. Inflammation will always lead to scarring and degeneration. An example can be found in a common wound. Following a skin injury there is inflammation. As time progresses scar tissue is created and forms around the wound site. This contracts and pulls the wound together. Exactly the same occurs in the brain. The inflammation will cause the formation of scar tissue which then pulls and contracts the brain tissue leading to degeneration.
THE PROGRESSIVE ONSET OF DEMENTIA HAS STARTED
The most sinister and preventable cause of slow progressive inflammation and degeneration, which leads to dementia are viruses.
There are approximately 400 viruses that can affect the human body and the number increases yearly. Recent examples include Bird Flu, SARS. Viruses can easily cross into the brain and cause some of the common brain inflammation conditions, such as viral encephalitis and meningitis.
However milder infections can occur from such common viruses as influenza, gastroenteritis or viruses introduced during vaccinations. These will cause fever and headaches initially. However the tragedy of the viral infection is that some viruses can bind to the DNA and are in the brain causing low grade inflammation and progressive degeneration and scarring. This is the onset of dementia.
It is now becoming evident that the herpes family of viruses (cold sores, shingles, warts, genital herpes) can lodge into the brain causing low grade inflammation, which eventually leads to scarring and degeneration – Dementia.
This is the reason that dementia and Alzheimer's disease runs in families. The virus has attached onto the DNA and crossed the genetic line.
HOW TO PREVENT DEMENTIA?
THE CAUSE OF DEMENTIA IS
• Impaired blood supply to the brain
• Inflammation and degeneration of the brain
PREVENTION OF DEMENTIA
• If the arteries are clogged, clean and open the vessels by using a patented recipe, explained in full in Rays Book
• By reducing or eliminating transfatty acids, Also covered in Ray’s Book www.thesecrettoperfecthealth.com
• Remove viruses and toxins now before they start causing problems
You must de-viral yourself early to prevent problems starting now.
